More about me
I work on philosophy of mind and philosophy of cognitive science. My doctoral dissertation is entitled "The Nature of Introspection." My research contributes to two central issues: first, it argues against skeptical doubts about the reliability of introspection; and second, it proposes a model of the nature of introspection that explains the way in which we are aware of our mental states and we arrive at self-attributions. I offer a new pluralist model according to which introspection operates by combining and integrating various mental phenomena (in contrast with both reductive and standard pluralist accounts). I show that it is by introspection that we become aware of the character and contents of our mental states as well as the changes, transitions, and boundaries among them.
